My time is NOW!

There comes a time in everyone's life when they just stop.

Stop making excuses. Stop blaming. Stop complaining. Stop hiding.

My time is NOW.

There comes a time in everyone's life when they ask, why?

Why am I not financially secure? Why am I overweight? Why don't I attract people who are like who I am striving to be?

My time is NOW.

There comes a moment, no matter how brief, when we see ourselves for who we really are.

I am unorganized and lack discipline.

My time was last week.

There comes a time when we go to work fixing that which is wrong, without excuse.

My time is NOW.

Soon, I hope that you no longer recognize me.

I hope to be a new woman, formerly known as Sister P.

I realize that I have so much more than I could have ever dreamed of, but at the same time I have more baggage than ever before. I prayed for this life and did not prepare myself for the work that comes with it. The book I'm reading is making this all so clear. I'm reading, "Do You!..." by Russell Simmons and his life is so parallel to mine that it's almost like I'm looking into the future and reading my own story 20 years from now, if that makes sense.

I am getting so organized that I'm running out of things to do. I'm taking on new projects around the house because I'm finally getting it together. And I knew that when I got my proper rest (which comes with peace of mind) and reduced my stress, I could get my families diet right and the weight would take care of itself. I saw someone yesterday who said, "Man, you must be hitting the gym hard! You look good." I haven't set foot in a gym in months. I'm just doing my thing and staying on my grind and following my own plan for eating, rest, work and family time.

To my blog readers: If I'm missing from time to time, I'm just doing me. No offense, but I blog for me. When I need it, I do it. When I don't, I don't.

Wishing me and YOU the best,
Sister P

Listen I applaud you taking "YOU" time! If more Sisters did that I believe our blood pressure would be normal, we'd lose more weight and we would definitely smile more. DO YOU WITH GUSTO!
